Knowing the Score: Understanding the Impact of Project Forecasting 

Many contractors do not understand the serious implications of failing to monitor and forecast projects. Companies that do not produce project status reports and work-in-progress reports could be receiving erroneous financial information and may be making ill-advised business decisions based on that information. Better financial planning enables project staffs to maintain and run more profitable, less problem-prone, projects.

 This course will address the following questions:  

  • How are monthly project status reports and work-in-progress reports produced?  
  • How should these reports be interpreted and what do they mean to the company?  
  • What are over- and under-billings and why is it critical to book them monthly?  
  • How do financial statements work and what do they mean?  
  • What do surety companies look for?
